Update on school closing bill numbers, hearing dates

Bill - CongressionalWrote this post earlier, passing on info from Jackie Leavy, and it seems to have disappeared. Woooooo.

  • SB 1571:  Chief Sponsor State Sen. William Delgado, Chair of the Senate Education Committee. State Sen. Jacqueline Collins is Chief Co-Sponsor. As of now, Sen. Delgado plans to call the bill for debate and a vote in the Senate Education Committee on TUESDAY, MARCH 19th, 1:00 PM in Springfield.

Important Disclaimer :  THINGS CHANGE rapidly in Springfield . . . Check the General Assembly website often –  www.ilga.gov – to confirm hearing date!)

  • HB3283:  Chief Sponsor State Rep. Elgie R. Sims, Jr, Chief Co-Sponsor State Rep. Emanuel Chris Welch

– the companion bill to Sen. Delgado and Sen. Collins’ bill. PLEASE NOTE:  The House version has been sent to the RULES COMMITTEE-  a standard ploy to prevent a piece of legislation from being debated and called for a Vote.State Rep. Linda Chapa LaVia, Chair of the House Elementary/Secondary Education Committee joined her Latino Caucus coleagues at Monday’s Press Conference, but needs to be supported and encouraged to work with Rep. Sims to get his bill sent to her Committee.
